Potters Market: Day 1

The day was beautiful outside the Cross Street Building in Spruce Pine. The big windows of the old hosiery factory gave almost ample light on my pots and the crowd was there, against all odds. Maybe the banking news was so bleak in Charlotte, that many of its residents came running to the hills to buy pots, who knows? At any rate, S & D readers were there and I had a chance to meet a few today. Here is Judy Shreve, a most frequent reader and commenter here, of Mountain House Studios with husband Bob with one of favorite pots of the last firing. They were in Asheville to check out UNC-A with their son. It was great to meet them.

Here is another happy customer with the bird jar that she bought. This piece was my designated donation to the NC Pottery Center. Most of the potters in the show participated in a benefit for the Pottery Center in Seagrove. The proceeds of this purchase will go to help the Center stay on top of their capital campaign. YAY, win-win.
